Katagami are antique Japanese paper stencils from the 1800s which were used to apply patterns onto kimono and scarf material using indigo and other natural dyes.
VPCo owns a huge collection of Katagami stencils which we use to create letterpress printing plates to make new prints of traditional Japanese designs and patterns.

Our printing process is done entirely by hand. This means that there may be slight variances from sheet to sheet including "salting" which is where the print may have very slightly patchy areas.
